Marco Polo sets off into the dessert for a journey of discovery… and danger, as you seek out riches hidden the free spins.
The Golden Caravan slot was released at the same time as the Christopher Columbus inspired Sails of Gold.
And whilst the two might look very similar, both with 10 paylines, 5 reels, wilds, and scatters on reels 1, 3 and 5, the two journeys are actually very dangerous.
Sailing across to the Americas, apparently, is not half as dangerous as crossing the empty desert.
This is actually a very simple game, so if you don’t like old fashion slots where you are mostly entertained by 4 or 5 symbols wins and wilds, you might want to cross the Atlantic with Chris instead.
Because this crossing of the dessert takes a while before you hit the silk roads of Asia. Yet, this adventure is full of surprises – sometimes you can trigger the free spins every 50 spins or so, other times you can go 200 spins without seeing a drop of free spins water.
But when they come, there’s a thrill that makes you want to go on a little further into the desert to find out if the promised riches are as good as you’d hoped.
One of the main draws here is that the top prize is 5,000x your bet. You reach it by essentially getting an almost infinite amount of free spins on this Golden Caravan mobile slot game.
You start with 10 free spins and 2x multiplier. Every time 3 camels show up, the multiplier goes up, and you reset the free spins counter to 10.
How often does that happen you ask? Usually you don’t get past a 3x multiplier on a good round. But on the bright side, you don’t need to. We’ve had some blazing wins with just that.
It’s not always easy, but who said that voyages of discovery every where? There’s no denying that this Play’n GO slot machine online has the riches if you’re brave, and bold enough, to follow the trail.

Wild: Marco Polo himself is the wild symbol, replacing all other symbols on screen, except scatter.
Bonus Games: Get a camel symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5 and you'll trigger 10 free spins with a 2x multiplier.
The good news? The camel symbols are now wild and show up often. How often? Often enough you get a little thrill, as if you catch three something magical happens.
You reset the free spins to 10, whether you caught them having played 9 or 1 free spins, and the multiplier goes up by one.
We haven't managed to get much higher than 4x multiplier, but much more is possible.
Gamble Feature: After any win, you can have a chance to play a little card game, where you can gamble your winnings. You can bet on whether the upside down card is either red or black, and double your winnings, or the suit of the card, and quadruple your wins.
Guess incorrectly and you lose your winnings.
The Golden Caravan mobile slot is Play'n GO going back to it's classic roots, creating simple machines, with big wins, and little features.
And it works. There's a reason they've continued to be popular, and some of their older casino games such as the Lady of Fortune slot still being played today; sometimes you just want 10 paylines and the occasional thrilling free spins.
If you are after something a little more modern from this mobile games provider, but with equally large wins, we'd also recommend the Royal Masquerade slot which takes from the original home of Marco Polo; Venice.
